Owner & Executive Chef Mark Freedman, formally of his critically acclaimed “Mark’s on Westover”, returned to the Triad's fine dining scene with "Mark's Restautant" in June of 2011, and has since forged Greensboro's best kept culinary secret. His lavish seasonal menu-featuring a diverse spread of unique small plates, distinctly crafted Entrees, and a wonderful selection of housemade desserts-reflects his French classical training; but, where Chef Mark distinguishes himself is through his heavy use of locally sourced & produced ingredients, and 30+ years of eclectic culinary experience.

The food was good, but overall the experience was so so. Felt like a pretty stodgy place. Don't think I will return.

On Saturday evening our reservation was for 7:30. We decided to have a drink at the bar first. At 7:45 the receptionist told us we had to be seated then because she had a 8:45 reservation coming in (so we needed to be done then). By 8:45 you had about 8 empty tables with no one coming in. That was very unprofessional in the tables opinion. We’ve never had someone tell us we needed to leave within an hour.

Excellent discovery. Food of a very high quality and served impeccably. Loved the anchovies in the Caesar salad. The salmon was delicious and every side was tasty and just the perfect pairing with the main course. Dessert was perfect way to finish off a fabulous meal. A certain candidate for best in Greensboro.

This superb restaurant is becoming a not so hidden gem in an old house near Guilford College. Highly recommend their shrimp with mascarpone and lobster ravioli.

I had high hopes for Mark's, but they just didn't pan out. Service was slow to the point that the ice in our cocktails was largely melted by the time we received them, and my wife was served two uncooked ravioli (containing seafood) in her order. Before our meal, I'd heard from a couple of people that Mark's used to be outstanding but had slipped. This is now confirmed for me, and we won't be returning. For the price of this dinner (about $120 before gratuity), we could've gone somewhere where we'd have been absolutely assured of an impeccable experience. We both felt like we wasted our money, and that's not the feeling one wants to have after a celebratory meal. Very unfortunate.

Valentines Dinner was met with a table that wasn’t prepared so we stood there awkwardly in a crowded small dining room trying not to intrude on others until the table was set. Secondly, we waited 15 minutes or more for a drink order with 15 more minutes to arrive. Third, the trout tater tots came out cold with a pasty undercooked center after waiting 30 minutes after placing the order. We sent them back and returned with just barely cooked trout tots, still with a pasty center and really no trout to be found after another 30 minutes of waiting. Dinner finally arrived another 45 long minutes later. The steak was good however, the side vegetables were cold. My fiancé ordered the duck and the entire plate arrived cold including her vegetables and additional side. The entire dinner date stated at 7:15 and we finally left after 9:45. I’ve been to Marks before and never experienced this but it was an experience worth noting after paying $110 for just the meal and drinks without a 20% tip. I don’t believe I’ll be going back unless I’m invited by others.

Food was sloppy and lacked flavor. The menu had potential. I order the special, crab cakes were burnt and my meal as well as my dates were thrown together. My date ordered the chicken and the sauce was poured all over the plate in addition to the chicken. Would not eat here again.

The food selection was very good, all four meals were quite good. Drinks were very good, the atmosphere was quiet, you could have a nice conversation. The waitress seemed a bit pre-occupied is my only concern. I will be back to try more of your delicious menu.

Mark's has excellent food at acceptable prices for the quality. Service was good but not overbearing. When the restaurant is full, it is very noisy, especially in the back corner. It remains one of the top 2 or 3 restaurants in the Triad.

Two or three of us enjoyed the good burgers. I enjoyed the mushroom soup and shepherds pie that were specials. In the past I have enjoyed the ostrich entrée. One of us complimented the mac and cheese and another the wrap. Each couple shared a desert , and as I recall the key lime pie and chunk chocolate bread pudding were pleasing. Presentation and service were good.

Third or fourth time eating here. Ordered the beef filet. It was cooked perfectly medium, however there was no sauce and the steak could have had more flavor. The apple potato cake was very tasty. My wife’s scallops were perfectly seared and delicious. Tiramisu was average.

Consistently excellent food. Chef/Owner Mark does a great job providing a fine dining experience. Attentive staff. Quiet, friendly ambiance. Perfect for occasions, romantic dining or group events.

the food was wonderful, some of the best chicken ever. the only complaint was the coffee was kinda weak, but that is a small price to pay for all the great food we did get.

Tried to make reservations for 3 but OpenTable system kept defaulting to 2. Even tried to Modify to 3 with no success. I included a note to the restaurant that the RESERVATION was for 3, not 2. They had four days to read the note and call if necessary. Nothing. When we got there they said they only had a table for two and we could squeeze three at the table. I explained 4-5 times that I put a note to the restaurant about increasing it to 3 but they talked to me like I was a liar. All my fault, not theirs. All they wanted to do was argue. Mark read the note for the first time while standing there. VIP, Reservation is for 3, not 2, birthday. Offered to put us at the bar but with underage granddaughter it wouldn't work. Offered to set table up in the entrance in front of the bathrooms. I declined and said we would go somewhere else. We have been patronizing Marks for twenty years going back when he was on Westover. I won't have to worry about being embarrassed again. Very unprofessional.

Great waiter and presentation of food. The chef stopped by our table. A nice touch.
